Lowe
Knoxville, TN, United States After 17 years with Allied Toyota Lift, Steve Lowe has decided to retire. With a long history of success in sales and building a strong culture at Allied, he will be sorely missed. In 17 years, Steve has overseen the sale of over 7,000 forklifts. Allied Toyota Lift has received the Toyota President's Award eight out of the last 10 years, and has been nationally recognised as an elite dealership. The company says this wouldn't have been possible without his unwavering dedication to advancing the mission of the organisation. In retirement, Lowe plans to travel, enjoy time with his family, and potentially learn to golf. Lowe is known for many things - an avid runner and cyclist, an accomplished salesman, but most importantly, a kind and passionate leader, according to colleagues.
